Use scraps from your stash to create a fun fabric bookmark that takes just minutes to stitch.
4"x8" rectangle of print cotton fabric
3" square of double-sided fusible stiff interfacing
Matching all-purpose thread
From the fabric, cut two 4" squares.
Cut the interfacing square in half diagonally, creating two isosceles triangles.
With right sides together, fold one square in half diagonally to create an isosceles triangle; press. Stitch the short sides using a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving a 1" opening along one edge for turning. Repeat to stitch the remaining square.
Turn the fabric triangles right side out through the openings; press, folding the opening raw edges toward the wrong side.
Insert one interfacing triangle into one fabric triangle through the opening, folding one opening seam allowance around the corresponding interfacing edge. Abut the triangle long edge with the fabric triangle fold. Press to fuse the interfacing to each fabric side, following the manufacturer's instructions.
Repeat to fuse the remaining interfacing triangle inside the remaining fabric triangle.
Stack the triangles, aligning the edges and corners. Edgestitch the short sides, backstitching at the stitching beginning and end.
